“Maricopa Corporate College being able to provide a customized program for our students through ESL was fantastic. It was all resort and hotel terminology and things that they could do. The other thing we liked about it was the fact that it was on our property...We like our associates to be happy, to enjoy where they work, to come in and have a great time and so, you know, the hope is associate retention, associate engagement and happiness all around.”
